The view from the lounge was superb and the cottage lived up to all our expectations. We would not hesitate to recommend it to others and hope to return ourselves one day.

It was a very nice stay. Very much changing scenery every day; from rainy to snowy, to sunny, to cloudy. A very tiny river turning into a fierce river over night. Loch Ness is just a few miles away and Inverness and Fort William were close by. Great Highland views all around! Loved it!

We loved this holiday, the cottage was excellent and the owners were brilliant. It was in a beautiful location and a quiet setting right on the river. I would recommend this holiday every time.

I loved the location! As a keen fisherman to have your own spot on the river on your back doorstep was like heaven on earth! This was topped off when my son caught his first salmon.

Fantastic cottage and setting, the view of the river and forest from the living room was amazing, very peaceful and quiet.
Mrs Croft

The owner is so friendly, helpful and approachable. Levishie is the lodge that overlooks the river (the other two have trees in between) and it is quite possible to sit and look out of the window at the river and woodland all day! It is a lovely warm and cosy lodge. Its a great location to travel to the Black Isle to see the dolphins at Chanonry Point, to go to Corrinmony RSPB Reserve or to get to Skye. It is one of the best holidays I have had. It was also my second visit.
Mrs Gilmour

Despite being on the main road it was quiet. The river running right outside was a fabulous bonus, as were the bird feeders in the garden. Access to the area was great due to location. Very relaxing and with lovely owners, and very dog friendly. Overall one of the best cottages we have stayed in.

This was our second visit to Levishie. We love the quiet and peaceful location with the abundance of wildlife on the door step. An osprey visited the river in front of the cottage.

September 2014
We spent a week in this cottage with our 2 children. The cottage is located in a peaceful, breathtaking environment, a few steps away from the salmon river. A big garden equipped with trampoline and badmington net provided activities for all in the evenings after our visits. The owners Sue and Ali were full of good advice on where to go and always available while staying discreet. The cottage was perfectly equipped and comfortable. All in all, a perfect place for a restful holiday. No tel network or wifi which we thought was great! Real peace at last!
November 2010
What can I say, Our first visit to Scotland, Lovely cottage next to the river which was safe the the children to play in (summer months) Nice quite Location. Dog friendly and very clean, Owners very pleasant and welcoming, We have no negitives and we will be returning next year.
December 2011
Accommodation was perfect for two adults, two children and 1 dog. Very comfortable. Good base for exploring the highlands. Would recommend visiting Plockton for lunch and spending a day in Inverness.

Lovely lodge/cottage. Very comfortable and well equipped. Was originally concerned as it is close to main road, but its not really an issue. The road is relatively quiet and the windows double glazed. The river running past the cottage is noisy. Lovely cottage. On chilly evenings it warms up very fast. Copious amount of hot water and heating, very cheaply. Shower may be a problem for larger people. Owners very friendly but not intrusive. Three cottages on site, but they are away from each other. Levishie is the only one that directly overlooks the river. Good location for Skye (hour away), Fort Augustus in order to cross Loch Ness and travel to Cairngorms, and Inverness (25miles) to access Black Isle. Husband was upset that it is advertised as having Sky, but it is freesat, so very few channels work. Not that you need to watch television when so much is going on outside. Beware of the midge season and come prepared.
July 2012
The best thing for me was the view from the main rear windows across the peaty river to the steeply-wooded pine forest beyond. I found it very relaxing to watch the water gently cascading over rocky shelving into a deep pool. Mesmerising! A brief single glimpse of an otter on the far bank was an unexpected bonus. The cottage was well appointed with things that work. Hot water that gets hot quickly, utensils that are sharp/useful, chairs that are comfortable, a shower that is powerful (although not without idiosyncrasies!), towels that dry you quickly, etc. None of these are particularly difficult yet how many places get them all right? Proximity to the road was not a problem as there was little traffic and the double glazing coped well. It was a little smaller than we expected but that wasn't a problem in practice. The owners live on site and are both friendly and helpful. On one occasion Suzanne helped my wife 'over and above' whilst I was on Ben Nevis with my boys. I was surprised and *very* grateful for this. They allow you to fish for trout in the river should you desire. Invermoriston is a great location for seeing a lot of Scotland. It's about an hour from each of Skye (visit the Spar Cave) and Inverness (for Colloden). It's a little over that to Fort William (for Ben Nevis) and Glen Affric. If you fancy a road trip on a wet day there's always John O'Groats (3.5 hours each way) with the seabird colonies at Duncsnsby Head and Dunnet Head. Oh, and Loch Ness and the Caledonian canal on the doorstep too. One minor negative - midges. We suffered on the first 2 days but they weren't a problem after that. Overall we loved it!
December 2009
The Cottage is very comfortable and very clean; great equipment with all what one needs. Wonderful view out of the livingroom window on the River Moriston. Prime location for so many discoveries in the north of Scotland. Quite great care by the owner...lovely people. A wonderful cottage and we will rent with pleasure again.
December 2009
Perfect accomodation and idilic location. We had a fab time touring Scotland and to come home to a small but very cosy cottage finished our day off beautifully.

Great location superb cottage great time
July 2010
Cottage was ideally situated with river right outside, husband loved it for fishing. Saw an otter and lots of different birds. Owner had chickens, the girls would visit everyday and then they provided us with fresh eggs. Location was great for visiting Skye, Plockton etc. Have recommended cottage to friends and family already!!
